Roman Borodachev has worked as a freelance graphic designer in Nha Trang City (Khanh Hoa Province) since 2017. On June 12, he slipped and fell on the bathroom floor, breaking his hip.

After receiving a medical check-up, the doctors at Khanh Hoa Provincial General Hospital asked him to have surgery soon. However, because there was no money, he went home to practice in the hope that the wound would heal quickly.

However, as the day went on, his muscles began to atrophy. He had to be hospitalized immediately.

His doctor said that he required surgery to replace the femoral neck.

His friend, Anna Los, wrote a letter asking the Russian Consulate and the Department of Foreign Affairs of Khanh Hoa Province for help. On June 4, Anna also posted his situation on social networks to ask for more benefactors to support.

Anna was very surprised to see that as soon as Roman's situation was posted on social networks, dozens of strangers transferred money, giving him enough money for surgery. By August 6, the donation amount had reached more than VND30 million.

Roman said that he felt very touched and surprised because he received many greetings and much help from Vietnamese people./.
